Syria 'strongly condemns' U.S. withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria “strongly condemns” U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement, saying it will increase tensions in the world, state media reported on Tuesday citing the Foreign Ministry.

Syria is a close ally of Iran, which has helped President Bashar al-Assad in his war against rebels trying to unseat him.
